Structure and configuration of MQ-131 gas sensor is shown as Fig.1, sensor composed by micro AL2O3 ceramic
tube, Metal-oxide semiconductor sensitive layer, measuring electrode and heater are fixed into a crust made by
nylon and stainless steel net. The heater provides necessary work conditions for work of sensitive components.
The enveloped MQ-131 have 6 pin ,4 of them are used to fetch signals, and other 2 are used for providing heating
current.
Electric parameter measurement circuit is shown as above Fig.1.

APPLICATION
Resistance value of MQ-131 is difference to various kinds and various
Concentration gases. When using this components, sensitivity adjustment is very necessary. we recommend
that you calibrate the detector for 50ppb O3 in air and use value of Load resistance that( RL) about 100 K(50K
to 200 K). When accurately measuring, the proper alarm point for the gas detector should be determined after
considering the temperature and humidity influence.
Noting: there are a round hole in the up and down side of the sensors, this design enable the sensor inner gas to
exchange better with outside air, and the sensor shall has higher sensitivity, quicker response and resume time
with a fan .
